    Manny Ramirez. Player Coach. In Iowa.

    Don't think there are many that would argue the fact that the man knows how to hit, juice or not and can pass on some of that knowledge as long as he isn't passing any needles. A good majority of those in sports are willing to give out second (third, fourth) chances, though sometimes it really bites them on the ass.


    In doing my research for my Rays now and then thread I have been surprised where some of players have ended up, a good majority stick with the game in some form even if it is a very "low" level. It's just too hard to completely walk away.

    Mark McGwire and Barry Bonds are major league coaches now so why not?

    Can't say I hate the move. PED's or not, the dude has a beautiful swing and has a lot to offer, teaching wise.

    Maybe he can teach Baez that hitting HRs isn't everything

    Mark McGwire is the Dodgers' hitting coach

    Barry Bonds is a "roving Spring Training instructor"

    Oh, I see

    I was just addressing the notion of him being a coach regardless of whether or not he's also playing with my original reply, as I figure the implied contoversy was a known steroid user coaching players.

    Player Manny already got into a fight with coach Manny over a lack of hustle on a ground out
